(Monday 18 March 2019) Now in its fifth year, Maserati announces the highly anticipated 2019 ‘Maserati 100’ index – celebrating entrepreneurial excellence in the UK. The 2019 edition published in partnership with The Sunday Times, recognises innovation and the dedication of those entrepreneurs from growing start-ups to established businesses based across the nation.
The annual list celebrates a diverse number of entrepreneurs; of all different ages and from all around the United Kingdom. Over 60% are from outside of London, including locations such as Edinburgh, Manchester and Cardiff. The average age on the list is 42, with the youngest, Stephen Wilks from Seneca Learning, just 24 years old.
Three key sectors contributing to the 2019 list include, food & beverage, technology and healthcare. The index also features a number of companies who have invented some incredible products, including Jamie Cook, Henry Neilson and Georgie Smithwick of Hexo Helmets, who have created the world’s first custom 3D printed cycling helmet.
Mike Biscoe, General Manager, Maserati GB, said: “I’m delighted that the Maserati 100 has become an established platform to celebrate British entrepreneurialism. Each year we are impressed by the quality of entrepreneurs recognised, and it’s great to continue to see such a diverse mix of talented individuals who are all doing something incredible in their chosen fields of business. Maserati was born from the dedication and hard-work of entrepreneurs Alfieri Maserati and his brothers, so we feel it’s only right that we continue to honour and support entrepreneurs today who are shaping the very future we will live in.”
Sunday Times Business Editor, Oliver Shah, said: “We’re proud once again to be able to shine a light on entrepreneurs who are making a difference to their communities and the customers they serve.”
